Whether you are a naturalista or chemically relax your hair like myself, finding haircare products that give your strands the life they need can be the epitome of struggle. Am I the only one that has a whole array of shampoo, conditioner and other haircare product rejects under their bathroom sink that you don’t know why you haven’t just thrown out yet? Yes? Oh, okay then. Anyway, I think I’ve finally found a line that’s affordable and actually works for my dry, damaged hair. Let’s get into this Pantene Gold Series line and I’ll give a few details on each item that I’ve used.
The Pantene Gold Series Moisture Boost Shampoo claims to gently cleanse and instantly soften hair, while removing impurities and product buildup. It, along with the entire line, is paraben-free, which is awesome. The whole line is also infused with argon oil, making it perfect for dry hair. Typically, when I use products with oils, it makes my hair super greasy and heavy, causing crazy buildup. I’ve used this shampoo for about two months now, and I must say I’ve seen a difference in my hair. My hair feels a lot less dry, and I am finding that my scalp isn’t as itchy as it tends to be when I use other shampoos. I definitely recommend this is you have dry, damaged hair like I do.

My hair is not only dry, it’s also a little thin (I’m getting old, y’all lol), so I have to be careful when it comes to conditioners. This conditioner claims to restore moisture and strengthen the hair, and is paraben-free, sulfate-free and dye-free. I need the moisture, but I can’t use a conditioner that is super heavy, because it will weigh my hair down in a super unattractive way. The Pantene Gold Series Moisture Boost Conditioner gives me everything I need from a conditioner without the weigh down I tend to get. The best thing for me is that it detangles my hair super nicely. (Side note: The shampoo doesn’t make my hair super crunchy or tangled either, for the win!) The argon oil makes my hair super soft but not greasy and a mess. Rating: 5 out of 5
This right here tho? This is probably my top favorite product from the line that I’ve tried. The Pantene Gold Series Hydrating Butter-Creme is the most nourishing hair dressing I have used that didn’t make my hair super greasy (notice a theme here, folks?). Not only does it make my hair super soft as it claims, it also keeps the frizz at bay. According to Pantene’s website, it provides the hair with 72 hours of moisture, and I’d have to say I agree with those claims. For relaxed hair like mine, it is recommended to be used when wrapping the hair at night, but I also use it on those ‘I’m not trying to be bothered with this hair’ days when I wear my hair up. I’ve definitely experienced great hydration since using this product, and my hair stays in place all day. Rating: 5 out of 5
Pantene Gold Series Intense Hydrating Oil gives such shine to the hair, you will look at our hair like it’s that brand new wig fresh out of the bag. Pantene claims that the oil is instantly absorbed into the hair to help heal damaged strands and make it shine bright like a diamond. I have to say I agree. You can even mix it with the hydrating creme to add extra moisture to your strands, which I do typically after I blow dry and flat iron my hair. Do I recommend this to y’all? Most definitely.

All in all, I highly recommend the Pantene Gold Series line. There are a total of eight products in the line, and you can find them at your local drugstore, Walmart, Target, etc.. The prices may vary depending on where you shop, but Pantene has them priced on their website from $5.99 to $9.99.
